This case study details a Hong Kong Right of Abode application where our client had, due to ill health, unexpectedly spent more than two years away from Hong Kong during the 7 years of continuous ordinary residence needed to lawfully establish permanent residency in the HKSAR.
I want to apply for PR –
1. I have stayed in Hongkong for 5 years from May 2007 to July 2012 after which I had to move to Singapore for work
2. I have owned a property in Hongkong since early 2011 and have continued to pay tax on my rental income
3. I currently have a HK work visa as I still frequently travel to HK for work- my old HK ID card has been working without any issues so far as well.
Could you advise if I can apply for PR status? I am travelling to HK again this Thursday and Friday and will be happy to meet if you could advise on the same.
